Support the Right to Live Movement in California!

Stephanie Packer was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and told she had three years to live. This 33-year-old mother of four has been under intense pressure to end her own life. After physician assisted suicide was legalized in California in June, her insurance company said they would not cover her treatment for cancer –but they would cover the cost of physician-assisted suicide. It was only after Packer went public with her story that the insurance company covered her treatment.

In her last remaining months on earth, Packer has dedicated herself to loving her children, dying gracefully, and championing the rights of other vulnerable patients like herself. In contrast to the “right to die movement,” Packer wants to be the face of the Right to Live movement.

Please join with us in applauding and supporting Packer for her great courage. Let us be the voice that says that we support the right of all people to live until they die naturally. Assisted suicide devalues life and destroys the relationship of the patient with their doctor. Let’s thank Packer for choosing to courageously live despite great obstacles.

Let us support Packer in being the voice of the Right to Live movement!

Tragically, America no longer values the vulnerable in our society. Summer blockbusters celebrate assisted suicide as “living big” and society applauds a 29-year-old woman taking her own life because she has cancer. 

In contrast, Packer stands in the gap for other terminally ill and vulnerable patients like herself.

“Terminally ill people need to know they’re valuable and worthwhile,” Packer said. “They think they will add value to their lives by taking their own lives, that ending their lives sooner is more dignified. But if they really value their lives and the lives of the people around them, they could entrust their doctors to care for them properly and treat their pain.”

Packer shares that California’s assisted suicide law has had a chilling effect on the cancer community. On forums where patients once encouraged each other and shared messages of hope, patients now share they feel pressure to commit suicide.

Our elderly and our sick deserve to be loved, cherished, and respected. Assisted suicide disposes of the weak in our society. We must take a stand and show our culture how detrimental assisted suicide is. 

Let’s make our voice heard by supporting Packer and the Right to Live movement.
